Water boil order lifted in St. Charles & St. Peters
ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – People in St. Charles and St. Peters can once again use their water freely. The boil order has been lifted. It put in place after a water main break Friday.
The break was in the secondary water supply line from St. Louis that serves both the St. Peters and St. Charles. About half the water supply for the two cities comes from St. Louis. The other half is supplied by local wells.
Customers of Missouri American Water were not impacted by this situation.
Crews worked on repairs for 40 hours straight. Once those repairs were completed, tests were conducted to make sure the water is safe for consumption. Those tests came back Monday morning.
City water officials say consumers do not need to “flush” their water lines, but you should discard any ice made in your ice maker during this time and run one or two cycles of ice before using them.
Water storage levels have also returned to normal levels in both cities.
